In 2017, Alyssa Liddle was diagnosed with Stage 3 Ewing Sarcoma and was referred to Dr. Cindy Kelly, orthopedic surgeon with OrthoONE at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center (P/SL). Alyssa had a tumor in the lower portion of her right leg. Dr. Kelly presented the case to the tumor board at P/SL where the team discussed the best options for her care. The board, Dr. Kelly and Alyssa, as a team, decided a knee disarticulation (amputation below the right knee) was her best option.
Post surgery, Alyssa is doing well and incredibly grateful to Dr. Kelly, Rhonda, her physician assistant and the entire team for their excellent communication, answering her questions and taking care of her from start to finish. Alyssa states, “Thank you Dr. Kelly and your team for seeing me through all the ups and downs, from chemo to surgery. Life goes on. Live life without limitations.”
